Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella announced the arrest of Christopher J. Grieg, 39, of Clifton on charges of stalking, contempt of a stalking restraining order and cyber-harassment.
According to Prosecutor Musella, in September, members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit were informed that a victim received more than 20 anonymous, alarming phone calls and multiple text messages from an unknown caller using technology to anonymize his Caller ID.
The investigation revealed that, between September 5 and October 10, Grieg used the Internet to generate numerous phone calls and send anonymous electronic messages to the victim.
As a result of the investigation, Grieg was arrested on October 12 in Paramus and charged with stalking, contempt of a stalking restraining order and cyber-harassment.
Grieg was remanded to the Bergen County Jail pending a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
